To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was disappointed to realise the text of this book and the writing based exercises and printed. This isn't ideal for Victorian (and most Australian) kids who are learning to write in semi-cursive. The tracing exercises are printed, however the students could use semi-cursive in the other exercises. The words to select from however are printed so the child will need to adapt their written response.
I purchased this for our child who is 5 to support her learning along with the subtraction and addition books. They are wonderful - start with very simple exercises that gradually get more challenging. They also have many pages - unlike other workbooks we've purchased, which have much fewer pages. The repetition in the books builds confidence, before children move onto the new concept (nouns, adverbs, plural, singular) etc. The child is meant to be able to sit down and do the exercises on their own - but I tend to sit with our child to guide her through the different tasks. Highly recommend for supporting young learners! Grade 1 was the appropriate level for our 5 year old. I'll definitely purchase other books in this series!
I just love the way it progresses and introduces new concepts. My son started it when he was 4,5 y.o. and we aren't native speakers, but he readily grasps anything due to the way it's introduced. Highly recommended and will definitely buy the next books.
Love kumon I studied kumon as a kid and now my daughter and she finds these so helpful in improving on what she already knows. Some questions can be repetitive however in life much of what we do is repetitive and a lot of progress can be based on memory which I believe where this system stems from so I don't mind it, it also helps in ammending any mistakes my daughter would make.
